*This review is more of a rant, btw, but either one works IMO. :)*

Summary (Goodreads): 

How did Ashley spend her summer vacation? Imagine the hottest guy in Hollywood. Do you see the girl next to him, the one handing him a cup of coffee? Yeah. That’s her.

Interning on a major motion picture is not all bad. She gets to watch some of the scenes and even offer her opinion. “That kiss looked lame. Laughably weak. There’s no chance at an MTV award with that kiss.” LOL. 

Until the director says, “Hey, Intern. Yeah, you. Ashley. You’re right. So, teach Caspian how to kiss. Oh, and get in front of the camera. We're going to need you in this next shot."



GRR!! That ending!! It frustrated me beyond belief- and not in a good way. Up until then, the book was actually pretty good. But gah! I can't believe Ashley just accepted that guy back without a second thought! What the fruit! The guy went off on a drunken rage about her drugging him, etc, etc.-and all those claims were really, really stupid. It would make more sense for him to accuse her of cheating on him (she was not) or ANYTHING other than her drugging him.  (WHY ON EARTH WOULD ASHLEY DO THAT?!) When he came back to her at the end, she didn't even have one little hissy fit over his sweet talking British self. I mean, yea British accents are cute, but REALLY?! She took him back with, "Yea, well you didn't say sorry. So we are never ever ev- Oooo soft lips. Mmmm cologne. I think you said sorry, but whatever, you're hot. Let's get back together." And another thing: When did they start going out? There was a part where the Realtor mentioned them moving in and raising kids- and you would think Ashley would have spoken up and said they weren't even dating- let alone have kids. But no, she just commented on how they weren't that old.

Um ok. 

And then the realtor called her his girlfriend, which she didn't deny, so it got me all confused because there was no mention in the book about them establishing a bf/gf relationship. Minor hitch compared to that ending though.  -_-* 

But despite everything, it was a good book, very fun, fluffly, and funny.  Ashley was a very likeable character (for the most part), while I had some issues with Caspian (refer above).  I would recommend this book for anyone who loves chick-lit and Hollywood romances- but if you're like me and want some angsty anger at the hot and unreasonable hero who totally had it coming, this is not the book for you;).

Thanks for reading~:)
